November 14-15, 2015 - New Melones (TOC)
The 2015 TOC is in the books! It was a fun weekend at Lake New Melones with a real nice day on Saturday and a fairly nasty one on Sunday.
After BnT's top 12 for the 2015 season hit the water a new TOC champ was crowned.
Ending his 2015 season the same way he ended 2014 Daniel Balaba took the win, making it back to back TOC victories. Dan weighed in 20.58 pounds for 2 days worth of fish, and a 4.25 pound big fish for the day 1 and overall big fish of the weekend.
2nd place would go to Rob Linden. Rob had a solid 2 days of fishing and finished with 19 pounds even for his best 10 fish.
Finishing in 3rd place was Michael Alaga. Michael, who is our youngest competitor fishing his first full season with BnT, had a couple of good days for 17.15 pounds of New Melones bass, and the day 2 big fish of 2.40 pounds. We are gonna have to keep an eye on this guy!
First out of the money was Scott Rouhier.
Congrats to all who made it to the TOC this year and thanks to everyone for another great year of kickboat fishin with BnT!

Club officers for 2016 are

The tournament rule that was changed is rule 4e in the tournament rules.
This rule is regarding driving to an alternate launch location then returning to the weigh in via fin and oar power.
In the past anglers were allowed to use their vehicles to get to an alternate launch location then fish their way back to the weigh in site.
Starting in 2016 this is no longer allowed. All anglers will launch at the official time from the official launch location only.
